1805 Beach Avenue

The triangular area surrounded by Beach Ave, Morton Ave, and Denman Street was the site of some houses, along with a roller-skating rink and a beach club house. For a short time, at 1805 Beach Avenue, there was a  “joy wheel” establishment, which lasted only for a short time, followed by two car dealerships.
